    How can OpenDNS measure 15 minutes usage at a website?

    That's for OpenDNS to figure out, meanwhile I found an app called WasteNoTime and does exactly that.

    "That's for OpenDNS to figure out,"

    LOL, no, it isn't.  OpenDNS is a DNS service.  That said, your system initially sends out one or more DNS queries for Facebook domains to get the IP addresses, and then OpenDNS is totally out of the scope, i.e. your system doesn't contact OpenDNS any longer.

    Therefore again, given these facts how the internet and DNS works: how can OpenDNS measure a time interval spent at a website?

    My opinion: This is technically impossible and not feasible.  The same you could request that OpenDNS wash your car or clean your kitchen...

    Now, come up with your solution how OpenDNS could do it.  Will you revolutionize the way the internet works?  Good luck!

    "meanwhile I found an app called WasteNoTime and does exactly that."

    See what I mean?  This can only be done by a local application, never ever by an external service like OpenDNS.

    Time to revoke your idea.....

    Fuck you asshat. He/she had a feature he wanted, so he voiced it. If opendns can implement it somehow, then awesome. If not, oh well. Time to revoke your snobbish and rude concept of how people should be treated.

    Why not? I can do something close to it with Netgear LPC.

    Netgear LPC scheduling is a pure router function, nothing what happens in the cloud where OpenDNS is.
